3 Steps to Making a Big Decision


Every day we have little decisions to make: what to wear, what to eat, what to say. But every now and then, we have bigger decisions to make: where to live, where to work, who to marry.

So what’s the best way to make big decisions? Check out these 3 steps below:

  1. Think Through All Your Options: The first thing you should do when making a big decision is think through you all your options. Make a pros and cons list. Figure out what the repercussions of each decision would have on your family and friends. Sort through why you’re leaning towards one decision or another.
  2. Seek Advice from People You Trust: God designed us to live in community. And one of the best parts of that is having people to turn to when you’re struggling or uncertain about something. Proverbs 15:22 says, “Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.” So be bold and ask for advice from your spouse, your pastor, or a trusted friend.
  3. Pray About It: And finally, the most important part of making a big decision is praying about it! Ask God to give you wisdom and discernment, making it clear what He wants you to do. This is the best way to make a decision that will glorify Him!
